Google is likely testing GIF image search options.

The unofficial Google Operating System blog noticed on Tuesday that Google’s Advanced Image Search page now boasts filters that refine results to transparent and animated images. A file format that supports animated images is GIF, as the report noted, while transparency files are GIF and PNG.

It is currently a hassle to search and find any animated GIF within Google Image Search, so lets hope a form of these advanced search options stick and roll out to all soon.
